Had this in the brewery tasting room. Fantastic, well-balanced beer. You get a bit of the ma la flavor of the Sichuan peppercorn, and the ginger and lime really cut the bitterness of the base beer this was concocted with. A great summer beer - I wish I could get it in Northern California.

On tap at URGE. WAhoo! Supposedly a one-off for Ballast Point Night at URGE.

A: Translucent, vibrant orange with an inch of white sea foam. Good retention and lots of lacing.

S: Much orange and grapefruit with lighter tropical notes: mango and passion fruit. I get some lime and lemon with a faint ginger note and earth. Smells great.

T: Pronounced orange, grapefruit, and tangerine, with a little mango and lime. Ginger is faint, and I get a slight tingling on my palate from the Szechuan that blends with a smooth moderate bitterness. As always with this beer, no alcohol is evident.

M: Light medium body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is crisp, dry, and sticky, and that tingling on the palate from the peppercorn is unique.

Overall: I'd rather have a pint of regular Sculpin than a pint of this, but the combination of various elements works surprisingly well in this beer.
